When I press the display button, a stored image shows for a moment and then it makes the loud beep and turns off.
The lens will not retract.

It may be something more serious, or your new batteries may be too low for the camera to work properly, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the startup problems. I hope it works for you.

Casio Exilim won't turn on


My guess, only support people know what the two beeps mean.
Try to remove the battery and after a few seconds insert it again.
Then again switch on. If the error returns, contact the dealer or Casio support. Still it could be you think the battery is charged, but the capacity is not enough to power up your camera.

Won't turn on


I had this same problem! Scoured the web and found no solution. This is what I did to fix it...

Remove battery. Unplug charger. Press and hold the power button for 20 - 30 seconds. While still holding the power button, re-insert the battery and/or plug in the charger. Voila! Came back to life and worked like nothing ever happened.

I also did the same thing with the record button, but it was the power button that got the result.

Hope this helps!

I have a brand new Nikon D3100. The battery was fully charged and placed in the camera. I took about 4 photos, and then turned the camera off. When I turned it back on the battery wasn't working to...


The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.


The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.


Hope this solves your problem.

Good day!

The lens is stuck open and nothing will work. Every time I try to turn it on or push a button it beeps and turns off.


First, make sure you have a charged battery. Once you have that, try turning it on, and gently press on the lens to try to help it reseat. You might try googling the problem, there are free suggestions to try before you take it to a repair facility. But if you do decide to have a shop fix it, get an estimate first. Oftentimes, the repair is about what you will pay for a good, used camera on Ebay.

It won't power on


Batteries are too low. Install new alkaline batteries or better yet metal hydride batteries that have been fully charged first.
